REPORT: Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Criticized Christians

In a report from the Daily Mail, former family friends claim Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling didn't just make racist comments around them, he beat his son, paraded around naked and allegedly said "Christians are stupid."

The report is based on claims from Sterling's deceased son's best friend Phillip Scheid and his sister Cheryl Bogart, who say they have known the family for decades. Sterling's son Scott died from a drug overdose last year, something they say he was driven to by his father's mental and physical abuse. 

According to Bogart, Sterling -who is Jewish- would always say "Christian people are stupid and don't know how to make money." 

The report goes on to allege Sterling had a history of calling his son racial slurs for dressing up in rapper's clothing lines and lived like a "colonial master."

Sterling's son shot Phillip 12 times during a dispute and Cheryl says she was drugged and fell out of a window at a party where he was dealing drugs. Neither blame Scott, placing blame on Donald Sterling instead. "He's the reason why his son is dead, why I'm disabled and my sister is in a wheelchair. Donald is a scary, nasty human being. He whipped his kids. He was a savage man."
